All rooms have DStv, direct dialling phones, en-suite bathrooms, electric shaving plugs, coffee/tea making machines and a hair dryer.

What to pack
In order to make your stay as comfortable as possible, we suggest the following preparedness tips:
- UV protection sun block, lip creams, and sun hat
- Comfortable walking shoes for tracking safaris
- Prescription medicines
- During the winter (May to September) the mornings and evenings can be cold. Therefore we suggest you bring along a bush jacket and warm clothing for game drives and light clothing for the days.
- During the summer (October to April) light weight cotton clothing will provide both adequate shielding from the sun’s UV rays and comfort in the heat.
In South Africa the average number of sunshine hours is amongst the highest in the world.
